How sweet it was …

I got this sad news today from John Swann at Maple Creek Farm, famed for its southernmost maple syrup. I’ve written about them here before, and check out the photos too!

To our Followers, Customers, and Friends:

We regret to announce that due to increasingly warm winter temperatures over the past few years, the yield of maple syrup at Maple Creek Farm has been steadily diminishing to the point that it is no longer feasible to produce maple syrup at all at our Yancey County farm. Consequently, we will also no longer be able to host our annual Maple Tour in February.

We wish to thank all those who have visited our farm and bought our maple syrup. We hope that the climate change will reverse, and that winters in these parts will once again be cold enough to produce maple syrup, but we have our doubts that this will occur, given the trend of increasingly warm winter temperatures.?

It was sweet while it lasted…

Thanks again for your support,

John Swann
